i don't remember the origin of the carved drawer pull detail, but i remember it being a challenge to cut those faces out of the top frame board to make the grain continuos.
drawer detail with funky dovetails ...
this piece is actually for sale. the client is now in his late 70s and intends to downsize to a new home in the spring and he's editing his extensive holdings. he told me last week he 'hasn;t had a drink in 27 years' and his 'daughters house is too small' so it is on the block at a VERY reasonable price. way less than i would build it for again now. if you are at all interested, please contact me at 802-867-5541 for details.
thanks! it's a great piece. if i had a place for it, i would consider buying it myself !
